Art Events in LA!

First off…
I apologize to those of you not residing in Los Angeles for having a focus on mostly LA art shows. I live here, and most of the events I feel are worth noting get brought to my attention because they’re local … so….. I could use a team of correspondents in other places (any volunteers?) I could use updates in OC, SF, NYC, Seattle, Portland, Austin, Chicago, and international as well!

Until then, here is a weekend round up of events to come see!

Thursday Nov 13th (12-9PM)
Downtown LA Art Walk

Friday Nov 14th (7-12PM)
Bronx Zoo at Ghetto Gloss / Silverlake
Conceived as a Saturday afternoon cocktail party with art activities, Ghettogloss gallery launched its Bronx Zoo summer series in June at the delightfully dancy downtown La Cita bar. But with each successive Saturday, the hot spot’s back patio has been steadily transformed into a bona fide art class, as aspiring students grab sketch pads and draw models sporting lingerie and ape masks.  Shana Nys Dambrot curates a show at Ghettogloss on November 14th, composed of the finest zoological artworks.
Join us for a cocktail and banana reception on Nov 14, 2008 from 7P-Midnight.
Show runs thru 12-1-08 at Ghettogloss.
